Executive Compensation, Benefits & Bonuses


Outten & Golden attorneys can counsel employees about their rights under certain legally protected benefit plans, and help them recover the money or assets they are owed under these plans.

An important part of an employee’s compensation comes in the form of benefits: defined contribution (401K) plans, profit sharing and other deferred compensation, health insurance, and retiree benefits. Sometimes, though, employees and employers (or plan administrators, such as insurers) can have serious conflicts about the level of or eligibility for entitlements, and sometimes the difference can be very sizable. Employees have rights under the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) to appeal and—if necessary—litigate or arbitrate their claims for benefits. Outten & Golden attorneys can guide employees through the administrative process and bring their claims to court or arbitration.
